Twitter on Thursday announced that COO ALI ROWGHANI has "resigned from his executive role with the microblogging company, which has struggled to win over more users." The company in an SEC filing said that Rowghani had resigned effective Thursday and "will continue to be a Twitter employee and act as a strategic advisor to the CEO" (WASHINGTONPOST.com, 6/12). RECODE DAILY’s Kara Swisher noted the move is "likely to reinforce the image of Twitter as a bit of a revolving door and a place of management chaos."

Meanwhile, Twitter on Thursday separately announced that company VP/Media CHLOE SLADDEN also "is leaving the company" (SFGATE.com, 6/12).
